Christ Church School, Colne, 1895

Christ Church 1895

This amazing picture of Christ Church School, Colne, was most likely taken in 1895 after the extension at the front was completed. This housed new classrooms and new entrances – one for boys one for girls – from the playground, which was also divided along gender lines by a wall running down its centre. Perhaps of most interest is the partial view of the original school – to the right – which opened in January 1841.
